The War of 1812
Come back oh proud Canadians
To before they had TV
No Hockey Night in Canada
There was no CBC
(oh my god!)

In 1812 Madison was mad
He was the President, you know
He thought he'd tell the British
Where they ought to go

He thought he'd invade Canada
He thought that he was tough
Instead we went to Washington...
And burned down all his stuff

And the White House burned, burned, burned
And we're the ones that did it!
It burned burned burned
While the President ran and cried

It burned burned burned
Things were very historical
and the Americans ran and cried like a bunch of little babies, wah wah wah
in the war of 1812!

Now some hillbillies from Kentucky
dressed in green and red
left home to fight in Canada
but they returned home dead

It's the only war the Yankees lost
Except for Vietnam
And also the alamo
right, and the Bay of Ham!
The loser was America
The winner was ourselves
So join right in and gloat about
The War of 1812


In 1812, we were just sitting around,
minding our own business putting crops into the ground
We heard the soldiers coming
and we didnt like that sound
So we took a boat to Washington
And burned it to the ground.

Oh, we fired our guns
But the Yankess kept a comin,
The wasnt quite as many as there was a while ago
We fired once more
And the Yankees went a runnin
Down the Mississippi
to the Gulf of Mexico

They ran through the snow,
They ran through the forest,
They ran through the bushes,
where the beavers wouldnt go.
They ran so fast,
They forgot to take their culture,
back the America, and Gulf, and Texico

So, If you go to Washington,
its buildings clean and nice,
Bring a pack of matches,
and We'll burn the White House twice!

When the White House burned burned burned
But the Americans won't admit it
It burned burned burned
It burned and burned and burned
It burned burned burned
I bet that made them mad
And the Americans ran and cried like a bunch of little babies wah wah wah!
In the war of 1812!
